Windsor - Mordialloc - Windsor:
My alarm went off at 5:25am, it's good that it did, that's the time I set it for, the reason I set it then was so I'd have the chance to not only get to the Hell Ride, but to shave my legs and get a coffee as well. It is the normal time I wake up on a Saturday.

Anyway, this Saturday, at 5:25am when my alarm went off, it was raining, pretty decent amounts of rain. So much rain that as I sat on the dunny, measuring my heart rate, I wondered at the sanity of riding in it. I then convinced myself not to ride and went back to bed only to be woken a short time later by Lee phoning to ask where I was. The next 45 minutes were a fight between apathy and guilt.

Guilt won out and at 7:20, I rolled out the door into the warm morning air for half of what I'd told myself I'd do today. "Play in the rain on the Hell Ride."
